  • RockRadioBY launched in Ukraine

    The RockRadioBY was launched in Ukraine on the website of Ukrainian RockRadio. The radio stream features music by modern and cult-favorite Belarusian-speaking bands, espreso.tv reports.

    Oleh Vdovichenko, a Ukrain­ian radio pro­duc­er, and Siarhei Bud­kin, head of the inde­pen­dent Belaru­sian Coun­cil of Cul­ture are the found­ing fathers of the project.

    “Many music indus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives were forced to leave Belarus, and numer­ous songs were banned. Rock­Ra­dio­BY aims to be a plat­form for Belaru­sian rock musi­cians and sup­port­ers of true Belaru­sian cul­ture. The radio sta­tion intends to show­case Belaru­sian and Ukrain­ian rock and serve as a start­ing point for joint cul­tur­al projects,” accord­ing to the cre­ators of Rock­Ra­dio­BY who spoke to espreso.tv.

    The team plans to expand the platform’s con­tent with news blocks. These will include infor­ma­tion about the sit­u­a­tion at the front, cul­tur­al ini­tia­tives, Ukrain­ian-Belaru­sian rela­tions, author’s shows, inter­views with the Belaru­sian oppo­si­tion, cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal fig­ures, as well as with rep­re­sen­ta­tives and sol­diers of the Kas­tus Kali­nows­ki reg­i­ment. The orga­niz­ers plan to air shows with both Belaru­sians and Ukraini­ans who sup­port the idea of a free Belarus as a coun­try friend­ly to Ukraine.

    “This will enable Belaru­sians to receive truth­ful infor­ma­tion about the events in Ukraine, giv­en the lev­el of cen­sor­ship and pro­pa­gan­da in the offi­cial Belaru­sian media,” the founders believe.

    Addi­tion­al­ly, a smart­phone appli­ca­tion has been devel­oped for this project, allow­ing lis­ten­ers to access Rock­Ra­dio­BY.
